Re: Thompson Center Icon Warlord

Found the magazine with the article: Shooting Times April 2010 ed.

Barrel: 22" rifling 5R Hand Lapped, 1:10, 1:11.25, 1:12(Tested) RH Twist
OAL: 42"
Weight: 12.75#
Stock: Composite Manners T2A w/ adjustable cheek piece, QD sling swivels studs, and 1"recoil pad
LOP: 13.875"
Sights: None, integral 20MOA Picatinny rail
Trigger: Adjustable 3.5-5lbs. (3lbs. tested)
Safety: Trigger block, two position with separate bolt lock.
Price: $2,995.00

"Fit, Finish & Function

My initial examination revealed no flaws. The Warlord's fit and finish were flawless, and its controls functioned smoothly and positively. The stock was beautifully in-letted, and the bolt cycled effortlessly. The trigger pull broke crisp and clean at an ounce shy of 3 pounds. The rifle felt great in my hands and pointed naturally." (Shooting Times Magazine, Greg Rodriguez Shooting Editor)

I was wrong about the Cor-Bons! Sorry another article I had read. Here is some range data:

All tests @100yrds.
Black Hills 168gr Match 2599fps 0.52"
Hornady 168gr TAP A-Max 2657fps 0.64"
Federal 175gr Match 2534fps 0.42"

Range Notes from the editor:
Accuracy is the average of five, five-shot groups fired over a Caldwell front rest and rear bag. Velocity is the average of 25 rounds measured 15 feet from the gun's muzzle with a Shooting Chrony chronograph.

Should be noted the editor tested at 300 and 600 yards. Due to mirage he could not do a paper test. He ended up going out to a range and shot some steel. Shooting at a 1MOA target at 300 he hit 20 for 20. At 600 he again used a 1MOA size target and once he adjusted for mirage he hit consecutively without fail.

Hope this helps.
